Question:Does everyone’s skin react the same way to sunlight and the ultraviolet radiation?

No. People with very fair (pale) skin burn much more quickly than people with darker skin.

People with very dark skin have much better natural protection than everyone else.

Redheads, people with many freckles and Scottish teachers should be much more careful when exposed to sunlight, because they are at greater risk since these groups tend to be fair skinned.
